A fair weather condition is expected in most parts of the country due to the easterlies or warm and humid winds from the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, the trough of low pressure area (LPA) spotted outside the Philippine area of responsibility (PAR) affects Mindanao, the State weather bureau said.

Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) weather specialist Ezra Bulquerin, on Saturday, March 5, said that the easterlies continues to affect most parts of the country.


“Easterlies ang nakakaapekto sa southern Luzon, Visayas, at Mindanao kaya medyo mainit at maalinsangan ang panahon natin, especially in southern Luzon and Visayas. Dito po sa atin sa Metro Manila at nalalabing bahagi ng Luzon, expect po natin ang fair weather condition pero meron pa rin pong isolated rains o pulu-pulong mga pag-ulan sa susunod na 24 oras (Easterlies continues to affect southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. A warm and humid weather prevails over the said areas, especially in southern Luzon and Visayas. In Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon, expect a fair weather condition with a slight chance of isolated rain showers in the next 24 hours),” said Bulquerin in a public weather forecast.

Meanwhile, the trough of LPA, according to Bulquerin, affects Mindanao.

“‘Yung Mindanao po ay apektado sila ng trough of LPA. Itong LPA na ito ay hindi naman natin inaasahan na magde-develop into a tropical depression pero maaari po itong magdala ng pag-ulan sa areas ng Visayas at Mindanao (The trough of LPA affects Mindanao. This weather disturbance is less likely to further develop into a tropical cyclone, but it may bring rain showers in the Visayas and Mindanao),” he added.

No gale warning is in effect over the country’s seaboards. Fisherfolk and seafarers are free to sail, said Bulquerin.
